Myth of the Month...Will Going Out with Wet Hair Make You Sick?

Moms are right about almost everything, but
science trumps them on this one. When
researchers at Baylor University exposed 44
volunteers to the cold virus, they found that
those who were made to stand in a chilly room
weren't any more likely to get the sniffles than
those who stayed toasty. A smarter move:
Keep your immune system in top shape by
getting enough sleep and exercise. That way
your body can defend itself from any virus.
Body heat escapes through your head, so dry your hair to stay warm.
